Spring has sprung, and boy, do my lungs know it.

I haven’t posted in two weeks! Does this blog still exist?

(pokes Internet)

It does!

Hi, guys!

Your normal posting schedule (like, 2-3 times a week) will be resuming shortly.

My job’s been hopping, but, just as importantly, I have been hopping.


When you think “jock,” I know that I’m the thing that typically comes to mind. I can’t blame you.

Truth be told, I wheezed my way through both of these events (this spring is not fucking around).

But I shaved 8 minutes off my previous 5K time, and, more importantly, I did not die at either event. Nice try, pollen.


My spring flowers were mostly bulbs planted by the previous owners.

I guess between that and hitting bars with my beautiful visiting-from-Texas Ginger, you can stop filling out my sainthood application.

(Can we take a moment and discuss how I almost wrote “tainthood application”? And how my mom reads this blog? Sorry, Mom. If you don’t know what a “taint” is, do not Google it.)

But now I’m done with exercise for a while, and the plants are, for better or worse, in the ground, so I can settle back for illustration.

Here’s a sneak preview:

I dare not say more.
